Submissions to Scintilla.


The deadline for poetry submissions is 31 July.

Poetry submission protocols:

  • Up to five poems can be submitted per issue.
  • Please submit them electronically using the link on this page.
  • Poems should be laid out on an A4 sized Word document.
  • Poems should be in sized 12 font unless there are particular graphological reasons for using another font size.
  • Each poem should begin on a new A4 page.
  • There is no page limit as such. Scintilla accepts both long and short poems, but the editors may occasionally decide to accept an extract of a longer poem, depending on the circumstances of the poem and the issue.

Please send submissions as attachment to: poetry at vaughanassociation . org

You will need to type the address correctly. It is not available as a link or as a cut and paste address in order to prevent spambots from harvesting it and targeting our system with unwanted mail.




The deadline for prose submissions is 1 September or by special arrangement.

Please send prose submissions electronically on A4 sized Word documents using size 12 font, double spaced.  With minor variations, Scintilla uses the MHRA style guide.
